Students who have recently completed comparable non-degree courses at an accredited two- or four-year college or university with a grade of B or higher may request approval to apply those courses toward the completion of a professional certificate at the Fordham Real Estate Institute. Students are encouraged to seek approval from the program director prior to the start of their first course at Fordham.
